We love staying at the Alegria when we go to Mendocino. It is the first place I check when making a reservation and if we can stay in the Pacific Suite, we book it. The inn is charming, and a little has a little Funk to it which we Love. The Pacific suite is very comfortable and large. On one... More

We've never stayed in right in the town of Mendocino before, and feel lucky that this was our first endeavor. My husband and I stayed there for a weekend getaway with our young daughter. Eric and Elaine, the proprietors, really do a great job. They, and their staff are warm, friendly, and helpful. We stayed in one of the cottages,... More

I've never stayed at a B&B before, so can't compare it to anything, but my wife an I stole away for a weekend here and enjoyed it very much. The owners were very nice and helped us pick places to go. They served a wonderful breakfast and the room (we were above the main lobby area) was just the right... More

We've been coming to Mendocino for years, and have always wanted to stay in the only lodging on the coast in this quaint, historic town. We finally had the opportunity and were not disappointed. Rather than stay in the main building, we chose the rustic cabin with an ocean view, private deck, and quick walk to the beach. Although we... More

We stayed in the Garden Cottage...had a little wood burning stove for chilly nights. You can hear the roar of the surf all night long, and an easy walk to the beach, which is spectacular. I am Gluten Free and the hostess made a phenomenal GF coffee cake for breakfast. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Second time I've stayed at the Alegria B&B on treks to Mendocino. Possibly the best run of the lodging choices in the area. Hotel is unique with a variety of rooms and suites with individual personalities. Stayed in the Treehouse room the first time ... rustic large suite-type room in its own small cottage with great fireplace. This time I... More

Every minute of our spontaneous stay was luxurious and special. The delicious organic and gluten free breakfast items were so appreciated and unexpected. The owners of the hotel were lovely, helpful and friendly. The property is on a beautiful bluff with incredible views with a private path down to the ocean and river. We stayed in the upstairs unit of... More

A lovely stay. Hospitable host, comfy, clean room in the house across the street from the main building and cottages, five minutes from beach (down steps either through the property or just along the street by the church). No real view of the ocean - just visible through one window. Little garden with benches outside the front door, colourful. We... More

Recent two night stay in Mendocino- what a nice surprise. Awesome owners/proprietors- Elaine and Eric. They really wanted to make everything perfect. Great view from our cottage- high tide heading into the cove was wonderful to watch. Breakfast was delicious. We especially appreciated having a "breakfast to go" on our last day- Elaine arranged scones/fruit and coffee to be ready... More
